Android M vs Android N: What has changed?

It seems like device makers are slowly starting to jump onboard the Nougat bandwagon. A few days ago we told you LG started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for it G5 flagship in South Korea. But other OEMs like Motorola or HTC are yet to follow suit.
